|Farm caretaker and son pumping water in the field|
The farm at Pila, Laguna is not irrigated. Hence, water is pumped by the use of Yanmar pumps like the one above. This equipment was bought 2nd hand, about 10 years ago and it still works perfectly today. However, we had a major overhaul which costs me a few bucks before we were able to use it again. The little boy accompanies his father, after attending school. The farm is his playground; so, he has a vast area to play around with friends.

RUSTIC LIFE IN THE FARM AT PILA, LAGUNA
Hi! I am a CPA by profession and dabbles on other things ---real estate, farming, the Academe, and stock trading.
I am a freelance writer and blogger. When I am not doing those things mentioned, I sleep. If awake, I research on the varieties of rice that can withstand prolonged flooding.
I am currently researching on the best organic fertilizer for rice. Who knows, I may end up finding the best type of worm to use for vermiculture. :)
